MINSK, 24 May (BelTA) – The core equipment for the Belarusian nuclear power plant (BelNPP) is expected to be delivered to the construction site in 2016-2017, Belarusian Energy Minister Vladimir Potupchik said in an interview with BelTA.

“The construction of both power-generating units of the BelNPP proceeds according to the schedule established in the general contract. Some 5,000 builders are working on the project. The contract stipulates that a total of RUB15.7 billion will be spent this year, which is 1.4 times as much as in 2014,” Vladimir Potupchik noted.

In 2016, the work on the first power-generating unit will include the beginning of the assembly of the reactor vessel, turbine, steam generators, and electrotechnical equipment and the welding of the main circulation line.
